Fear of God Clothing Line Debuts Summer 2013 Collection in L.A.

“FEAR OF GOD” IS A WAY OF LIFE, A PHILOSOPHY, THAT GOES BEYOND RELIGIOUS EXPRESSION. THE COLLECTION, BORN IN THE STREETS OF LOS ANGELES CONNECTS THE MASSES THROUGH A STREET-WEAR MENTALITY. ALL OF THE FABRICS, MATERIALS AND GARMENTS ARE SOURCED AND CONSTRUCTED IN DOWNTOWN LA.”

When Kanye West first wore a kilt during his performances for the Watch the Throne tour, the Hip-Hop world was up in arms about Kanye’s new style. From the fans to fellow rappers, Kanye had everyone talking about his unique sense of style that many fans didn’t quite understand.  Last night (May 1) AllHipHop met the clothing company behind the hype, as Fear of God was on display at Four Two Four on the infamous Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, California.  For those unfamiliar with Fairfax Avenue’s fashion district, the famous street is home to a handful of stand out brands including Diamond Supply Co., Pink Dolphin, The Hundreds, Hall of Fame and many others.

If the goal was to shut down Fairfax Avenue, mission accomplished. As Hennessy V.S. filled attendees cups and the sounds of DJ Izzo (Freddie Gibbs’ DJ) could be heard from the street, Fear of God Los Angeles designer, Jerry Lorenzo, hosted a showing of his Fear of God 2013 Summer collection.  Known for being a head promoter at Greystone Manor’s infamous Sunday night, Jerry premiered his Summer 2013 Collection in the heart of Fairfax Avenue to a packed house.

To date Fear of God threads have been spotted on Kanye West, Chris Brown, Big Sean, Hit-Boy, and Matt Kemp (L.A. Dodgers.) Street wear heavy-weights are giving the new line recognition as well, as fellow Fairfax retail resident Nicky Diamond of Diamond Supply Co. stopped by the in-store event to show support. Karrueche Tran, Greystone Sundays resident DJ Orator, and Hit-Boy’s HS87 crew members K. Roosevelt and Oktane of Audio Push were also in the building.

The LA based clothing company, inspired by the late 80′s and early 90′s fashion scene, has exploded into fashion world with high-end clothing items designed to be worn daily.  The line ranges from flannel tops and pull-over hoodies to sweatshirts and drop crotch sweatpants, that many Hip-Hop fans will liken to the kilts and long tank tops Kanye and ASAP Rocky have been pictured wearing recently.

    Polo is better. This sucks. Just cause Kanye wear some garments doesn’t make me question my fashion sense. Never followed trends and i won’t be following this crap. Good day.

    • DJ7

      Polo was/is a trend, was it not? Mostly white kids only could afford that brand….I knew cats back in the day would get white girls to boost Polo shirts for them to parade around the less fortunate as if they had a come up

      • RMfag

        Did they cum up?

      • justmathoughts

        we’ve been wearin polo heavy in philly since 99, i wouldnt consider it a trend

      • DJ7

        ’99…..I speaking on the early 80’s B…you 15-20 yrs in the future so again, @ 1 point POLO WAS/IS A TREND….I know you don’t think Polo just came out in ’98 back in ’99 then?

      • justmathoughts

        naa i didnt say it came out then, i said we’ve been wearing it heavy since then (well thats when i started wearing it, i was 11) but in my opinion, something trendy is just a fad, fads dont stand the test of time, so by saying that polo has been a well known establishment since the 80s is just reiterating my comment that polo is not just a trend

      • Michael Callan

        worlds bigger then the kats u know from around yo way theres no way around this shit not being gay

      • DJ7

        WTF are you talking about, I’m Universal so every hood is my hood duke!! Besides, I’m talking about the 80’s not the 00’s….you know, when MOST brothas didn’t have good jobs or dope money to flaunt yet….feel me now? If not, then you just wanted to add your 2 cents to which you coulda kept in your pocket…..

    Clothing lines are still using that “It is a way of life..it is a philosophy.” cliche in 2013?
